Staff Paging

Not too long ago I acted as an intern for a large company. It was unpaid (which was ok) but my supervisor had no idea how to manage someone under her. The task I had to perform was complicated and I received next to no guidance in completing it.

I would definitely agree with this article and there can be a lot of benefits to hiring an intern, both for them and you.

However, make sure you know the law, because there are certain requirements the program has to meet, otherwise it could be considered paying an employee below the minimum wage.
